The White House
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Well appointed and comfortable room in an historic setting. The little extra touches made it even more inviting. The White House was well situated within Russell with the main waterfront area a very short walk. Our hosts, Steve and Emma, were friendly, well versed in the local area to suggest activities, attentive with an eye for service yet unobtrusive. Missing those wonderful cooked breakfasts in the garden.

I completely agree with all the recent rave reviews, so I won't repeat the detail.
A lovely property in a great location with wonderful hosts.
I have no hesitation in recommending The White House and hope to return someday.

Russell has always been a favourite place but the first time at the White House. We loved the old world charm and the graciousness of the hosts, Emma and Steve. Sitting on the deck as the sun goes down into the canopy of trees or having breakfast in the morning in the garden. It is actually better being slightly away from the busy-ness of the waterfront which is still only a couple of steps away. Highly recommended.

Steve and Emma were great hosts,always chatty an informative but never intrusive.We really enjoyed our room it was very clean and comfortable.The breakfast was really good and as my wife needed gluten free they went out of their way to cater for here.
We would have no hesitation staying here again this couple made you feel very comfortable.

the wonderful owners of this B & B in Russell, Steve and Emma, make this convenient spot a winner in charming Russell. It is a short walk to the piers and town sights, all of which are right there. Breakfast is homemade in their kitchen and they even allow use of their washer dryer at no charge. all 3 rooms are up a flight of stairs and are not very large but are sufficient. there is a lovely deck outside the bedrooms for drinks or even a take out supper.
